What a beautiful church! Built in the 13th and 14th centuries (If I remember correctly) and with stunning hand painted interior. Many old original pieces still in the church, including lots of hand carved details. Just 2 Euros to enter and totally worth it! Lovely...More

One of the most amazing things of all the churches are there artwork and decorations. In the Nicholai church, the most fascinating piece of our work is the astronomical clock. Totally worth a trip through and the €3 to get in.

We did not go into the church. There is a modest entry charge and we did not have enough time to do justice to a fee. However externally it is clear that the building has been renovated and impressive.

As far as Churches go this is a nice one, as are all the churches in Stralsund. Unfortunately it was under construction when we were there, so we didnt see it in its fullest splendour.

Unusual entrance from the Alter Markt square, not through the impressive door on the side. The church is sort of built into the town hall. Looks like a small white church, but you come into a musuem shop where you pay the entrance fee before...More

This is a brilliant place to pass away an hour if your are into church architecture. Be sure to read the information board outside with details of the lightening strike.

A visit to this historic church will, at least might,... enlighten and/or enrich any visitor's visual or mental impressions whether religiously inclined or not. There's a lot to see, a lot to learn about things we, generally, do not often think about. In any event,...More

A very nice church with plenty of details to study. Enjoyed the Seven deadly sins on the top part of the wooden crenelation of the altar area. Not easy to spot and the postcard which shows the carvings are a collage of pictures. Look up...More

Quite amazing! This is the oldest church in Stralsund and was started in 1234! Having seen a few large churches on this trip, this one was a real surprise. It is in the middle of a restoration both inside and outside and the paintings and...More
